Kale Pesto

If you are a pesto fan why not add kale in your next recipe, since kale is super nutritious! Don’t worry about the bitter taste of kale (if you are not a big fan) because you don’t feel it at all.  And again, it’s such a pleasure to have delicious, nutritious food with such little cooking time!

Pesto is another great sauce because it’s so versatile: you can use it in pasta, sandwiches, pizzas, toasted bread, as a dip ….
